Short Take: Brewers score early and late as Sox drop to 2-12 on road

Only about 90 miles north of Chicago, Milwaukee’s Miller Park is going to be one of the shorter road trips the Sox will embark on this season, but even that was not enough to break their early season road funk Monday night. They managed to cram a week’s worth of normal disappointment into one night; buried early thanks to another uninspiring start by Jeff Samardzija, a late rally thwarted by 8th inning bullpen collapse, and now a full 10 games under .500 on the road, 14 games into their road schedule. Brewers 10, Sox 7.

I’m not even going to bother with Samardzija right now, whose ERA stands a tick under 5 halfway into May. The Brewers scored 5 runs in the first two innings, capped by a 2-run homer off the bat of Carlos Gomez. I can’t even say he hunkered down after that rough start; Milwaukee put 7 runs on the board against him; I guess only 5 were earned, and at least he battled through 6 innings to save the Sox from having to go deep into the bullpen for the second time in three days.

The offense slept through the first 2/3 of the game against Brewers starter Willy Peralta but the ship righted late. Geovany Soto started the scoring with a 2-run bomb in the 5th, and the Sox scored 5 runs in the 7th and 8th to come all the way back, capped by 2-out RBI single from Adam Eaton (who hopefully pulled himself out of his well-noted early season funk with a 4-5 night that raised his season batting average by 29 points), but the comeback fizzled in the bottom of the 8th. Zack Duke, making his return to Milwaukee, gave up a pair of homers in the inning, a 2-run homer to Elian Herrera and an absolute monster shot to Khris Davis that absolutely put any hopes of another rally to bed. Francisco Rodriguez made quick work of the Sox in the 9th for the save.

The task of turning things around on the road now falls to Chris Sale, who is going for his 3rd win of the season despite showing an ERA of 5.93 so far this year. The Brewers counter with Mike Fiers. If you’re not watching the Bulls/Cavs pivotal Game 5 tonight, the Sox will be on Comcast Sports Net Chicago, with the first pitch scheduled for 7:10 PM.

Another poor start by Samardzija seems to ensure his tenure with the Sox will be short lived

Adam Eaton

4 hits tonight, including a clutch, 2-out RBI single in the 8th that temporarily tied the game. Raised his BA nearly 30 points on the season with one night's worth of work
